Unlike the safe world of the office, industrial environments are no stranger to extreme conditions and rough handling. With the new CmStick/BMC, Wibu-Systems steps up to meet the needs of intelligent device manufacturers even more and introduces new innovative components in the architectural design for an extremely compact and elegant layout.
The SiP (System in Package) technology that was adopted for this most recent dongle is an absolute novelty that provides a new level of robustness. With recent advances in miniaturization, the USB connector no longer projects from the body of the unit, but has become an integral part of the case itself. This new engineering approach shrinks down the overall size of the dongle to become the smallest model with flash memory available in the world market, and makes it resistant to pressure, vibrations, and humidity.
Like all other secure hardware elements in the CodeMeter product lineup, the CmStick/BMC embeds the most sophisticated smart card chip from Infineon, the SLM97, a security controller optimized for industrial M2M applications that offers exceptional endurance over an extended temperature range to suit ruggedized industrial environments and usage conditions.
This new breed of dongles is available with 16 GB 2-bit MLC (multi-level cell) flash memory. For faster data transfer, the unit is equipped with a USB 3.1 interface; for more reliable data retention, the dongle relies on Hyperstone’s U9 flash controller and their patented hymap© firmware; for even greater data security, an encrypted partition - Secure Disk - is enumerated and handled with CodeMeter API, while it remains invisible to regular users.
